New Online Store


I like making and selling jewelry.  Sometimes I have come along a piece of jewelry that I am willing to share, but I did not make this item.  With my etsy account I can only sell items I have made, so now I have found a place where I can share anything I wish to share.  So here is a link to my Square Market place.

Silk Screens and Silk Screening

I have created several afro-centric designs, and I think these designs will work nice with polymer clay silk screening.  I envision that these silk screens can be used to create small pieces of art.  In November I created a pretty unique piece using silk screened polymer clay.  I decided that I would like to create some afro-centric silk screens and use them to create wearable art work. 
    
 Adinkra Symbol - Strength
 
This is my first featured design.  It is the African Adinkra symbol of  'strength'.  The silk screen sheets are 4 x 5 inch squares.  Acrylic paints can be used to create the design.  Using typical silk screen process of squeezing the paint through the screen will create the design in paint.  A mixture of different colored clay and paints can yield amazing art. This is just a sample of what I created when playing with clay, paint and silk screens.
 
In the future I am looking for creative ways to use other Adinkra symbols.

I hope the new year brings prosperity and well wishes to everyone.  mmmm

I have to repair or replace my laptop so that I may really create postings for my blog.

I see myself returning to school to obtain yet another degree in pursuit of the American dream.  With that said blogging  and creating may be come difficult.

My laptop is down and I am going to try and create a post using my Samsung tablet. So this is my test.

Silk Screening


Just finished a class today on silk screening taught by Karen Woods.  She was a wonderful instructor. She gave us some great tips.  I see myself now looking for images that I can turn into silk screens.  Karen created a wonderful sample piece in class.  This was a workshop held by the New York Polymer Clay Guild.

LARGE PINCH FLOWER CANE

I conditioned some clay while watching a video. It was so warm that when I went to stretch out the blue blend it folded back on itself. So it was a mess. So I decided to work with it, this meant that the blue end of the blue/white blend was in the center. I also think in the future the initial petal cane should be rolled and reduce as a round cane. Reducing the cane in the round gets the cane to a desired size with ease. From France I have admired some big flower cane necklaces, so I am working on creating some large flower canes.
